Black Twine shares its top tips for pulling off this event.
Serve a signature cocktail to get the party started – we love this simple combination of Pomp & Whimsy’s gin with champagne from One Hope.
Serve bite-sized desserts that are finger friendly and won’t disrupt the try-on process – such as little heart cookies that say “I Do Crew”, “Team Bride”, and “Team Groom”, tiny parfaits, and mini eclairs.
Treat your tribe to some pampering that they can take home as a gift. We love Birdies slippers for comfort and fashion.
Use a romantic color scheme with shades of blush and greenery to create a natural motif with florals and simple linen napkins.
If possible, host the party in a space with both outside and inside elements – so you can see how the dresses will look in different lighting.
Tabletop rentals can be a cost savings if you are looking for plates and glasses to match your motif, but don’t want to add them to your permanent collection.
